This tasty ricotta dessert is cool and creamy and nicely flavored with vanilla and honey. Wonderful by itself, it’s even better when topped with fresh berries.
How do you make ricotta dessert?

I want my ricotta dessert to be low carb
If you prefer to use a low carb sweetener when making this recipe, it’s best to use Swerve Confectioners. Its fine texture will ensure the ricotta dessert is nice and smooth.
Can I use low-fat ricotta in this recipe?
I don’t recommend it. I experimented with using low-fat ricotta in this recipe, and I have to say that it’s just wasn’t as good. It was too grainy and not creamy enough. So do stick with whole milk ricotta when making this ricotta dessert recipe.
Is this ricotta dessert healthy?
I believe it is, at least for a dessert. I mean, I wouldn’t want a sweet treat to replace more nutritious foods. But if you’re going to have dessert, then yes, this ricotta dessert is a good choice.
It is made with just three whole-foods ingredients. And ricotta cheese is quite healthy. It is low in sodium, and high in calcium, phosphorus, zinc and vitamins A and B.
At around 140 calories per serving, 8 g fat and 10 g carbs, this simple dessert is better than many other desserts out there, homemade and especially store bought.
